Edna Cowboy said it all. He could have been the superintendent in Luling, but he chose Louise. Our loss, your gain. Make the most of it.

The superintendent you have a Louise ISD is a very knowledgeable and competent educator. I personally wished he were back here in Luling.

I have a difficult time trying to understand what "information" you, as "1 of many concerned" citizens is trying to get from folks in Luling that would involve Dr. Seabolt.

Obviously Dr. Seabolt has either made an unpopular decision which angers one, or more, LISD residents, or he is up for a big pay raise and you want us folks in Luling to recommend what we think he is worth.

Actually, I would lean more towards the former "unpopular decision" cause for this posting. And since it the time of the year when professional contracts are being renewed, or not, in most, if not all school districts in Texas, I would be willing to bet my last Confederate dollar a contract was not renewed, and now that affected someone wants to dig up dirt where there is no dirt to be found. And believe me when I tell you Luling ISD knows all about folks losing their jobs in a school district when they should not have, and about those who lost their jobs when it was the absolute right, legal thing to do.

If you are looking for dirt on Dr. Seabolt, you picked on a pretty 'squeaky clean' fellow, and would be wasting your time. I will tell you one thing that might be an interest in truth, you folks will never find a more dedicated educator when it comes to educating your communities children, and he is very good at making all the elements of a community involvement work-sour grapes and all. But if you want to run him off, let me know on this topix forum. I will help him get a bigger, better position where he will be appreciated for his efforts, and not he subject of a hatchet job by a disgruntled, former-to-be, employee.

So why don't you "1 of many concerned" tells us the real reason for this posting?

GPM, you are on target, 5x5. Dr. Seabolt is not perfect,but his heart is true and there is no dirt to find. I am going deep now. Keep the faith brown shoe, keep the flack coming, skid marks in the sky!

Thank you for all those concerned and all the information provided, here and in email. It will be very useful in the days to come. We have a total of 12 teachers leaving or retiring. That alone, as well as many other issues, is what concerns us as parents. Again, your response and emails are VERY appreciated! Thanks again. Luling, you can have him back. He's not our cup of tea unless he makes huge changes in a different direction and respects our teachers a little more than dirt.

The key information is that 12 teachers are leaving, or retiring. Why is that an issue? Last year there were close to 1000 teachers in Austin that were terminated when the AISD either riffed many of their personnel, or terminated teachers when many grant programs were ended, such as those programs that were funded with Federal stimulas money. How is that a fault of the school trustees, the superintendent, or ISD staff?

And another telling piece of information from you probably tells it all. Luling can have him back? He's not our cup of tea? He has no respect for teachers-treats them like dirt?

Are you saying your elected board of trustees were, and are, incapable of making 'good, appropiate, and competent decisions when it comes to hiring or terminating it's employees? That they made a mistake in hiring Dr. Seabolt, and terminating a teacher that believes the way you do?

And are you saying that your cup of tea is more superior to Luling's cup of tea? We'll take Dr. Seabolt back, but please, you stay in Louise.

What I can't believe is that our board actually paid this guys contract out! They obviously knew that he had done several things that he could of been fired for but elected to pay him off! I want to take this opportunity to thank you for miss handling our tax money!!!

That's what happens when you have contracts. This is what happens when contracts get extended and those who have the power to not extend them are not aware of misconduct issues. But here will never be a better way as long as local courts won't get involved and it takes a long time to get the state moving.

Contracts can be thrown out for using tax money for personal use or disregard of the law

Contracts can be voided for wrong doing! The obviously were aware of it if they decide to split ways with him after giving him an extension!
